I am trying to use changePassword.php to change the
password of a user

character tilde-n in it (UTF-8 \xF1). However, I can't figure out how to
specify this character in the --user= value. When I try to use \xF1, the
maintenance script sees it as the literal character string "xF1". If I
use \\xF1, the script sees the literal character sring "\xF1". I can't
figure out how to get the script to accept the unicode string encoding.
If you have a normal UTF-8 terminal, just type or cut-n-paste the "ñ"
however you normally would. If for some reason this isn't available (sounds
like you're expecting an 8-bit locale on your terminal?), I'd recommend
using the user-id with the --userid parameter instead. :)
